Sambayon - ARCH is not set...


Installed Sambayon, and then ran the following as per the Sambayon wiki -

emerge --sync


layman -S

glsa-check -f all


However, glsa-check -f all fails with a message:

!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the '/etc/make.profile' symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?

When I look in the file that the symlink points to, there is no file except for one named virtuals.

How can I fix this?
